It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.
– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
We used Pixton for pragmatics (social language and problem solving) because of the intricate features it offers for character's body language and facial expressions. It helped my students (who have written expression deficits) get EXCITED about storytelling.
– Mrs. Kemper
Pixton was very easy to use. It had many special features which were helpful to the teacher, and the interface was easier for students than that of Comic Life. The results -- even simple projects -- were very professional and the students were really proud of their comic strips.
– Ms. McMullin, 7th Grade
Pixton for Schools has huge value. The students were connected and found the learning fun. The programme engaged our low acheivers and they found pixton very rewarding.
– Ms. Grieve
It's a great tool for having my students summarize lessons. I love it!
– Ms. Balk, 12th Grade Tech
A mind blowing, game changing and all around awesome web-based comic strip generation tool. Following in the footsteps of Flickr, YouTube and Twitter, Pixton is poised to join the short list of cutting-edge, top-tier and truly innovative social web tools.
– Derek E. Baird
I teach a class called Social Communication: a blended classroom of regular education English remediation students combined with kids with autism. We've been working on emotions and correct ways of expressing them via facial gestures and body language. Having my students make comics expressing the appropriate emotions for a scenario was of immense help to the kids. Thanks for a wonderful product.
– Ms. Kingsley, English
Pixton for Schools combines the freedom to create with a set of choices that students can explore. This gives all students, even those who don't believe they are creative, the ability to be engaged. Pixton is affordable, simple, intuitive, and most of all, great fun for students.
– David Damico, Executive Director
Pixton was a great way for my students to express themselves through their comic strip while also applying their knowledge of writing in French!
– Ms. Goldthorp, 10th Grade French
Using Pixton to create scenes from a play is a simple way for students to explore Shakespeare's texts in a graphic format. With Pixton's built-in graphics and templates, the user can make the most subtle facial expressions, as well as detailed hand and body positions.
– Michael LoMonico, Senior Consultant
The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.
– Mr. Wilshaw, 11th Grade
Pixton is one of my favorite web tools. I use it with vocabulary; I assign each student a few of the week's words. The assignment is to show, not tell, what the vocabulary words mean in a comic. The kids love it and so do I!
– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration
The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.
– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers
A comic has all the grammar and spelling elements of a regular writing assignment. It reinforces all of the State Learning Standards at every single level of your child's education, so it's a really important tool.
– Amy James on CBS News9
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.
– Ms. Parker, Teacher
Pixton for Schools was one of the best teaching tools I could have used in the classroom. It helped to motivate the students to learn about literature in a new way. We covered everything from plot to characterization and beyond using Pixton.
– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English
Pixton gave my students a creative option for retelling, reflecting on, and responding to the story we read. I could easily determine who really understood the text and who didn't by the product they produced.
– Ms. Mason, ESL Teacher
My French Immersion students were very engaged in creating comic strips of their life story. We then downloaded the strips and showed them through a projector while the student gave an oral presentation on their life to date.
– Ms. Charbonneau, Grade 9
Pixton.com is unprecedented in making comic strip generation considerably simple. With its simple click-and-drag interface, Pixton enables its users with a fast, easy, and interactive way to create detailed and professional-looking comic strips.
– Jason Alyesh
We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!
– Ms. Butler, Teacher
Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.
– Mr. Daniels, 7th Grade Science Teacher
Pixton for Schools was great! Students had a creative way to demonstrate their knowledge and practice their technology skills. Your customer service is awesome!
– Ms. Anderson, 8th Grade Computers
The students were able to use Pixton to create their own "graphic memoirs" after reading Stitches, by David Small. Pixton allowed them to explore the relationship between words and images in telling a story.
– Ms. Kelly, 9th Grade
It is an incredible product. I have been creating a database of teacher websites and this product really stands out.
– Teachers First
Pixton comics are a great way to spark interest in my students and help them retain the basic ideas of a lesson. The combination of various learning methods, visual images and text, along with auditory reading aloud, helps students grasp each concept and retain that knowledge!
– Mr. Bignami, 8th Grade Science
Teaching Shakespeare in our middle school is always a challenge. Pixton comics provided motivation for comprehension. Thanks for such an awesome website for creativity.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
Highly engaging, easy to use software with clever functions allowing me to review and feedback to my class. I can think of loads of ways it could be used to demonstrate and evidence learning.
– Ms. Pulleine, Year 3 English
It gave my students a new way to express themselves.
– Ms. Sasscer, Computers/Math
Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.

It allowed my students to grasp a better understanding of what dialogue is all about and how to use/write it.
– Mr. Jette, 10th Grade
Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.
– Ms. Dempsey, 12th Grade Languages
I needed my students to create individual comic strips about the Bill of Rights. Pixton had the perfect image library. And it was easy to use!
– Ms. Del Bianco, Technology Integration Specialist
It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
– Ms. in't Veld, Teacher-Librarian
It allowed an alternate form of a unit project for a set of English classes. The teacher and students were very excited about using it and enjoyed the process.
– Mr. DiSalvo, Tech Specialist
Students gave considerable thought to story structure and sequencing. They enjoyed working on their projects in class and at home.
